Milan ran out comfortable 2-0 winners on the day.
"We have to give credit to our opponents today. They did better than us, even if they didn't create big opportunities," said Juric.
“I liked the last 20-30 minutes, where the team didn't give up anything and could get back into the game.
“It's more difficult when you are not fully fit, especially against these big clubs. The lads gave everything, we made many mistakes in the counter-attack.
“Milan deserved the win, they were the better side today.
“I have little to say to my players. I am sorry because we had a good chance.
“The lads have been exceptional so far. We showed the right attitude and we didn't give up. We are close to our target, but we want to give something more."
